About: Wrightington Hospital Wrightington Hospital Wigan WN6 9EP
Having postponed this op for over 30 years I am absolutely delighted with the result of my surgery. My op was in October 2014 and I am back fell walking with a vengeance. The horrid pain that I had in my foot whilst walking up and down mountains has gone. I used to be in severe pain after a mountain walk and it really took away a lot of the pleasure of walking. The pain in my knee, that I had when descending from mountain walks, has gone. My low back pain has gone and I feel fantastic. I have to say that my expectations for the speed of my recovery were unrealistic and I totally put my hand up to expecting too much too soon. If you are having this surgery then please take note of all advice. Having said that, as a result of my surgery, I feel that my fell walking days could well have been extended by at least 30 years. Thank you, you are a fantastic team and have changed my life!
